Hi, everyone,

An Asian student at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut, has written 
an article calling for America's metrication. It’s in the Wesleyan Argus (the 
University’s student newspaper,) here. 

The article quotes some of the international students and their difficulties 
with USC measurements, and one American student supporting USC. 

The closing paragraph is an excellent summary:

It’s a small change in day-to-day life, but it is an important one. Given the 
greater interconnectedness of the world and the standards on which technology 
and industry operate, it is a foregone conclusion that America will eventually 
switch to the metric system. The question, now, is when.

 The article has been posted to Reddit and comments will be here. 

I hope you can show him some support.

Best wishes,

Peter Goodyear,
